Ooh, this is exciting: Bandai Namco has obtained publishing rights to LittleBigPlanet Vita dev's aquatic horror game Hunger, which is now named Little Nightmares. Many had expected Sony to publish the game given its long-running relationship with the Swedish studio Tarsier Studios, but it's Bamco instead who's signed the project.

For those not familiar with the title, it sees you assume the role of a girl in a raincoat who's been captured and imprisoned in an eerie vessel named The Maw. This is psychological horror at its finest, as you must escape from weird and wonderful monsters who are out to eat you. There's no release date just yet, but more is expected to be revealed at Gamescom next week.

"Little Nightmares symbolises the evolution of our strategy to further strengthen the company portfolio with titles developed from all over the world," said Bandai Namco's Hervé Hoerdt. "As we continue to explore new ways to experience our IPs, we couldn't have found a better partner than Tarsier Studios to fulfil this vision."

We're pretty excited for this one – if you didn't watch the original, extended Hunger trailer, then you should definitely check that out through here. Are you liking what you've seen so far? Try not to feel peckish in the comments section below.
